and transportation, like housing and education offer a lot of value with not a lot of risk. >> so tell me how the fed plays into all of this, peter. there was all that noise last week about the division among fed members on how long the stimulus program should continue or will continue. if rates stay low and they don't fall any further, what's the impact of the growth in the muni bond market? how does that play into it? >> that's a great question. that's one we're talking about here as well. i think it's important to realize that the fed was only beginning to talk about having a debate or a discussion about removing that qe. so they've been anchoring on the long end of the market. which has kept rates from rising dramatically. i think that's the case for the foreseeable future. we don't see that removed any time soon. some of the excess in the economy, muni rates follow treasuries to some degree. we tend to be less volatile. muni rates rise to a lesser degree. we think given the fact rates have a bit of a ceiling on them and won't go much higher, we think muni still represents a good investment. you

"reason" magazine thinks so but cnbc contributor jared bernstein says there's no way. jared, why not? does it oversimplify is it t? why wouldn't that work? >> yeah, i found that to be oversimplifying and misleading. well, first of all, families and the government are different in a very important and actually keynesian way. when families are tightening their belts because of recession, the government needs to loosen its belt with fiscal stimulus to offset the demand contraction, but it has to be temporary. it has to go back the other way around. when families are doing bert and loosening the bel
